How to Make Super Crispy Fish and Chips

Step-by-Step

  • 1To prepare the fish batter:
    Combine dry ingredients.
  • 2Add the egg and soda water & whisk together just until the liquid is incorporated. Small lumps in the batter are not a problem.
  • 3Cut the fish into about 8 pieces. Season the fish with salt & pepper on both sides.
  • 4Dredge the fish pieces in additional rice flour to help the batter stick to the fillets. Dip the pieces into the batter & carefully drop them into deep fryer filled with oil & preheated to 375* F.
  • 5Fry a few minutes, about 5 is fine depending on the thickness of the fillets; just until golden brown on both sides. Drain on a wire rack placed over a cookie sheet. Serve immediately.
  • 6If you have to fry the fish in more than one batch at a time, hold the fish in a 200* F oven on the draining rack to provide air circulation all the way around the fried fish pieces to prevent from getting soggy.
